Well Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence had a strong response on Friday, via SI.com.
“Tell him to come on,'' Lawrence said. "We're ready. Can he play the game? He might want to shut his ass up and stay on the sidelines. He can’t play the game for them. ... We’ll see.”
Here's Pederson's exact quote from Monday's 94WIP Morning Show phone call:
"Anytime Dallas losses it helps, because here's the thing—I know the sky is falling outside," Pederson said. "It's falling and I get that and the fans are real. We're going down to Dallas, our guys are gonna be ready to play. And we're gonna win that football game and when we do we're in first place in the NFC East, we control our own destiny, we're right where we need to be. Has it been perfect or beautiful or all of that? No. But all we need to do is try to be 1-0 this week, beat the Dallas Cowboys, we're in first place. Listen, they're reeling too. They're struggling too. They dropped their last three games so this will be an exciting football game."
